Memorial Day

(The first book in the Mick Callahan series)
A novel by

Acclaimed author Harry Shannon gives us a novel with an unlikely amateur sleuth who has as many problems as the people he is investigating. Psychologist Mick Callahan was a television star until women, booze and ego brought him down. Now the former Navy Seal washout is a man on a mission--to get his life back on track. He reluctantly accepts a job hosting a radio talk show near his little home town of Dry Wells, Nevada. When a troubled young caller is murdered, Callahan decides to investigate. But then the mystery girl turns out to be the daughter of the richest man in the county. Suddenly Mick Callahan is compelled to uncover the dying town's sordid secrets, wrestle with his own memories of an abusive childhood-and then literally run for his life on the climactic "Memorial Day."

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"I enjoyed Memorial Day from first page to last. Mick Callahan is my kind of character - flawed and vulnerable, tanaceous and likeable. His debut is a fast, edgy, twisty, modern noir thriller with an expertly realized desert setting." - Bill Pronzini
